Worst Quote of the Week – September 6, 2019

“I am NOT going to use the evil acts of a handful of people to diminish the God-given rights of my fellow Texans.  Period.  None of these so-called gun-control solutions will work to stop a person with evil intent. I say NO to ‘red flag’ pre-crime laws.  NO to universal background checks.  NO to bans on AR-15s, or high capacity magazines.  NO to mandatory gun buybacks.”

Texas State Congressman Matt Schaefer, in the aftermath of a shooting spree in Odessa, Texas August 31

There is no reference to any types of firearms in any known version of religious texts.  After the invention of gunpowder in China in the 9th century C.E., the earliest documented firearm is the Chinese Heilongjiang hand cannon, which appeared around the end of the 13th century C.E.
